    Minor complaints thread

    I bumped into a mate today, he asked how are you? I said "Well, what's 18:00 plus 4 hours? And what day is it? I'm trying to work out my work hours". "22:00, and Wednesday", he said "I knew that, but *that's* how I feel right now." Me head is melted.

    BREXIT

    Yeah, I read that. I've been a bin man too. Back in the day all the drivers were like that hero. I don't mean that sarcastically, that guy sounds great, but it wasn't fun running after them all day. But it was about getting it done asap so they could get the pub or bookies before the...

    BREXIT

    xactly. Tesco or any of them really. It's quite easy for someone to take a photo and put it out of context. But I haven't really noticed a problem with shortages in my day-to-day. I worked in the supermarkets years ago, I think I still understand how they work. What I've noticed about Brexit is...

    Your Health Is Your Wealth

    Indeed. I don't like to sleep in, but today was my only chance to get a full eight hours in bed, albeit from 5am to just now. Right now is the first time in days where I've felt almost no pain.

    What movie did you watch last night?

    I remember having a screaming argument in Bruxelles after the second one came out. We agreed with each other in that it was incomprehensibly shite, but my argument was "it's a trilogy, wait for the third one!" The first one meant so much to people, the second one seemed like a betrayal. But at...

    Major Pleasures

    A friend of mine (and, indepentently of me, a very good friend of the wife) vanished about two years ago. No phone no email nothing. Honestly we thought he was dead. Herself had been actively looking for him, but no one knew anything. He reappeared today, healthy and happy. Much happiness. No...

    BREXIT

    Mate, imagine living here. And I live in Metropolitan London. There's loads of clever people of all classes races or political opinions or whatever here, there really is. But the stupid majority, it's astounding.

    Aha! The one I bought comes with an adapter cable, so now that one plug can power either of my broken DABs. Now I need to go back and decide whether to reorder the same thing, or just buy another of those adapter yokes, or go mess with the broken leads and play with wago's and solder. Or some...

    Yeah, that's pretty much what I meant, didn't really express it properly.

    Things I should have known before now...

    In other news, on this day 50 years ago: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siege_of_Jadotville Was aware something happened there and then, but there was a lot more to unpack reading that. The Irish lads were fighting Belgians?! "Commandant Quinlan's action is cited in military textbooks...

    Women's clothes

    Find a site that seems to sell stuff she'd like, or a particular brands website, then buy a voucher. Personally I wouldn't buy anything for the missus, unless it's band merch, and she'd probably already have one anyway. But I have noticed a couple of brands and sites she's into. Get her a...

    Things I should have known before now...

    After buying shares in Tayto, which were very lucrative, Garth took a change of musical direction. He insisted to his management that he could afford to do this considering the value of his Tayto shares. But eventually he relented somewhat and agreed that Chris Gaines was a better name than...

    Things I should have known before now...

    Garth Brooks songwriting partner named the song "The Dance" after Riverdance, because he thought that would endear him to an Irish audience. Géaraith didn't know anything about Flatley et al. In fairness to Garth, he was glad he didn't know, the way it all would end, the way it all would go.
